Daily Mail: Broccoli is well known for it’s anti-cancer abilities but now has reported to possible help slow aging too.
New research shows that sulforaphane which is found in broccoli activates antioxidant genes and enzymes in immune cells.
Oxidative damage is thought to be the main cause of aging. Antioxidants prevent free radicals (supercharged oxygen) from causing this damage.
“In particular, our study shows that a chemical present in broccoli is capable of stimulating a wide range of antioxidant defence pathways and may be able to interfere with the age-related decline in immune function.”
